    Well, your droppings board or droppings pit if you have one. With or without poop. [​IMG] There are lots of us that would like to see options for these sorts of things so please share.

    I don't have a dropping board but just about any scrap of lumber of decent size should do.

    i too have been searching for pics of dropping boards or litter trays. i understand the concept, but would like to still see some pics. i would also like to see how you might be set up, under ladder roost or 2-4 roost the same height and etc . i wanna maximize space in small coop. i think people just don't like to show their poo.
    just like when i am looking for a recipe in a cook book, i won't make it unless there is a picture.

    I know that I have seen poop trays or boards on some BYC'rs byc sites. I know this doesn't help much but the pics are out there. [​IMG] Maybe start on the coop pages and go from there.

    Your killin' me !!! snort snort snort....if you want to come to Ontario I will let you see the chicken POOP boards up close ....you can even clean them....I think theres about three inches of poop mountains on them now.....My hubby used steel brackets ...L shaped....use them to put shelves up....and we "eyed" it toline up the board under neath ....if they sat both ways on the roost .....if their butt was over the board...so they couldn't poop on the nest boxes below....worked great....Sorry I am still waiting for my teenager to help me in cyberspace to put photo's up....good luck !
